Sarah W Aug 05 2020

Review for Dr. George

Dr Sorenson is an exceptional podiatrist surgeon. Bedside manners could improve and he should explain the issue without patient having to ask. If I didn’t question something, he didn’t explain it. Otherwise I completely trust him to perform a surgical procedure on me successfully.

Aug 05 2020

Review for Dr. Sorensen

Dr. Sorenson was extremely helpful with my bunion surgery. He made me feel comfortable and I had AMAZING results. He went above and beyond any other podiatrist who I had seen in the past. I can do all the activities that I was unable to do for years.
